New developments in TOF + LA-ICP-MS

The guys from TOFWERK have recently just published an article in Spectroscopy on the combination of icp-TOF with LA-ICP-MS. I recommend it for those interested in advances in high-throughput/high-resolution imaging (including a ~2 x 1 mm image, measured at 5 µm resolution in just 80 minutes!)

iolite is working with TOFWERK on how to best calibrate and correct the data from these types of sessions. Given that the data reduction process, and file sizes, are significantly different, there will be some interesting development challenges, so keep an eye on this space!
